    • A family-owned business is one that includes two or more members of a family with financial control of the company.

  • 7. Succession
    • Succession refers to the transfer of ownership and management of a company from one generation to the next.
    • Plans for succession are lacking in most family-owned businesses. Why?
      • Owners are too busy keeping their businesses alive to plan for their own exit.
      • Owners do not have any confidence in the offspring or relatives who are supposed to replace them.
      • Owners do not see family perpetuity as a major concern.
    2-2
  • 8. Succession
    • Forcing events cause the replacement of the owner-manager and requires that someone else direct the operation:
      • Death
      • Illness or physical incapacitation
      • Mental or psychological breakdown
      • Legal problems (i.e. incarceration)
    • Implementing a succession plan:
      • Groom an heir
      • Agree on the plan
      • Consider outside help
      • Consider the future role of the entrepreneur
